Calcutta / Mumbai: England’s dream of title defence might have come to an end but the holders will look to seek consolation by aiming for a third spot finish, when they take on New Zealand in the third place play-off match at the Brabourne stadium on Friday.
Defending champions England and last edition's runners-up New Zealand were knocked out of the tournament after West Indies upstaged Australia to enter the final.
“We need to play for third place and rankings. Every game of cricket England play, we want to win.
“This won’t change. We are disappointed but we have a kind of roller coaster last two weeks in this tournament,” said Edwards.
In another match, Sri Lanka will seek to extract revenge on South Africa when they lock horns in the fifth-place playoff match, at the Barabati Stadium.
